McGregor was in court to face charges of criminal mischief, misdemeanor assault and menacing and reckless endangerment after he and his associates were filmed storming a UFC event in New York City, sparking a melee.

A second Irish MMA fighter - Cian Cawley, with an address at Hyde Park in Dalkey - was also charged with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

McGregor was released on a $50,000 bond and is expected back in court on June 14.

The press conference was kicked off with UFC 223 main event stars Khabib Nurmagomedov and Al Iaquinta [drafted in at late, late notice] as they tried to talk up a fight that did not exist until shortly after 2:30pm [New York time] on Friday.

Video obtained by TMZ shows McGregor picking up a dolly and smashing it into the side of the bus.

Mauricio Pochettino unfazed by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy's income
Speaking at his pre-match press conference , Pochettino said: "It was fantastic in the moment that we achieved the victory". For a player considered by many as one of the world's best shot-stoppers, that's an alarming fall from grace.

"Approximately 20 guys were apparently let in through the doors by the Mac Life guys, who were credentialled here", UFC president Dana White said, referencing McGregor's brand and its employees who allegedly helped the Dublin native and his crew.

"He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys".

McGregor's passport was not seized and he is now allowed to board his jet and return to Ireland.

UFC 223 is still set to go down with a revised card Saturday night in New York City. Flyweight Ray Borg will also miss his bout with Brandon Moreno after he was hit in the eye with shattered glass. Fighter Max Holloway tweeted Friday that he'd been forced to withdraw from his top-billed match against Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title, which UFC is stripping from McGregor because of his long absence from UFC fights.

After he smashed up the bus containing Khabib and a number of other fighters, he later handed himself in to the police, where he was contained from the early hours of Friday morning.

Court reserves order, to pronounce decision on Salman's bail on Saturday
Four other Bollywood stars , Saif Ali Khan , Sonali Bendre , Tabu and Neelam Kothari , were acquitted for lack of evidence. With his bail plea scheduled for hearing for 10:30 am today, Salman Khan is believed to have woken up by 6:30 am today.

The fight that included Lobov was scratched due to Lobov's involvement with the barrage.

In footage released by the UFC, he said: "Just tell me where and that's it".

If the image is legitimate, then the "Access Denied" poster had barred several members of Conor McGregor's team. I don't think too serious.

White called it "the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of the company", and warned that McGregor would likely face legal action.

He later reiterated that stance on Fox Sports' "UFC Tonight", saying: "Conor does want to fight".
